The Ghost is the world’s first aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser. Protect your car from theft like nothing else on the market today.
The Ghost protects your car from key-cloning, hacking, and even key theft. The only way a thief could take a Ghost protected car is by physically towing it away, even then they will never be able to drive it! The Ghost has no key-fobs or LED indications to give away its location. The Ghost uses the buttons in your vehicle such as those on the steering wheel, door panels or centre console, to allow you to make a unique, changeable, PIN code sequence that must first be entered before you can drive your car. Just like your credit card but you can make your car PIN even safer by making it up to 20 presses long!
However, we did not settle there! In order to make extreme security also be hassle free, we have created an iPhone application that connects to your car and allows you to get in and drive without having to enter the PIN code. This iPhone pairing allows a single, authorised, connection with a secret pairing code that is unique to every Ghost and communication between the Ghost and the iPhone is encrypted. All you have to do is pair your iPhone with your Ghost, leave the Autowatch Ghost application running in the background with Bluetooth enabled and you can drive conveniently and securely.
All Autowatch Ghost systems sold from August 2016 are compatible and the application can be downloaded from the App Store now for the low price of £9.99. See below for details on compatible devices.

Click on the video below for a brief demonstration as to how the Autowatch Ghost system works –
Engine start blocking
The Ghost will prevent the starting of the engine unless the unique, user defined PIN code has been entered first.
Undetectable using diagnostics
A modern thief can use diagnostics to detect circuit cuts on modern vehicles. The Ghost has no circuit cuts so it cannot be found using these methods.
No radio frequency signals
Thieves cannot use sophisticated RF scanning, code grabbing technology to detect what security device your vehicle has when it does not transmit any signals like conventional security systems.
Advantages of using the CAN data network
The use of the CAN data bus has several advantages including low risk during installation, low probability of detection, and allows for placement almost anywhere in the vehicle.
Because the unit communicates with the ECU on the data bus to immobilise the vehicle there is no way a thief could listen for the tell-tale clicking of a traditional immobiliser relay.
Stops key cloning and ECU swapping
A thief cannot simply add a new key or replace an ECU to bypass the Ghost and start the vehicle. Only a correct PIN code will allow the engine to start.
Tested for each vehicle
Due to the nature of the data bus communication the Ghost has been adapted and tested for every vehicle we list as compatible. If we list your vehicle you can be sure we have thoroughly tested its operation with the Ghost.
Weatherproof tiny device
The Ghost is sealed and so small it can be installed and wrapped into the vehicle harness anywhere in the vehicle making it near impossible for a thief to find.
Emergency PIN code override
If the PIN code is forgotten, the car is sold or a button is broken there is a secure, unique reset code for each device.
Service / Valet mode
Service mode allows your vehicle to temporarily start and drive without requiring the PIN code. The Ghost will exit service mode based on speed and time or by simply entering the PIN code.
Simple PIN code change process
At any time you can easily change the PIN code. Only you will know the unique PIN code for your vehicle
Uses the vehicle’s original buttons to enter the PIN code
The buttons in modern vehicles send data all around the vehicle which allows us to detect many different keys being pressed without extra wiring.
